Located in the south-western Pacific Ocean, New Zealand is a beautiful island country that ranks highly in quality of life, education, healthcare, economic freedom, and civil liberties. It is made up of two major landmasses, namely the North Island and the South Island, besides about 600 smaller islands. Owing to its diverse natural landscapes, rich biodiversity, and distinctive Maori culture, it is visited by plenty of tourists every year. This country is also home to elegant hotels, restaurants, and spas that offer the ideal atmosphere for relaxation. During your time spent in this enchanting island nation, you'll also get to explore its popular attractions.

One of the fabulous attractions you can explore during your New Zealand tours is Fiordland National Park. This UNESCO World Heritage Site offers protection to some of the nation's scenic landscapes. It is home to the popular fjords of Milford, Doubtful Sounds, and Dusky, carved by the glaciers. Upon visiting this national park, you'll come across virgin rainforests, gushing waterfalls, lakes, offshore islands, and mountains. If you like hiking, this park can give you some exciting moments upon taking the Milford Track. One of the delightful ways of exploring the fjords is sea kayaking. 

Another charming attraction worth visiting is the Bay of Islands, which can be reached with a three-hour-drive from Auckland. This bay has become a favourite among the yachting and sailing enthusiasts as it is dotted by over 144 islands. It is also a popular destination for fishing, as the waters attract many wonderful species of fish. While touring the coast, you can indulge in some thrilling activities like sea-kayaking. The presence of hiking trails, secluded coves, and a rock formation known as 'Hole in the Rock' also makes the Bay of Islands immensely popular among tourists.

Queenstown is one of the country's popular destinations you'd not like to miss while holidaying in this part of the world. It is located between the snow-capped peaks of the Remarkables and Lake Wakatipu. You can enjoy a range of exciting activities with your visit to this resort town, such as white-water rafting, bungee jumping, rock-climbing, mountain biking, and para-gliding. Visitors to this town can also go hiking on the excellent network of trails and witness some awe-inspiring scenery. You can also go on trips to the Central Otago region for exploring some marvellous landscapes that featured in the movie series, Lord of the Rings.

Rotorua is also one of the interesting towns you can explore while in New Zealand. It is located on the Pacific Ring of Fire and is one of the world's most active geothermal regions. While getting around in this town, you'll come across volcanic craters, boiling mud pools, steaming thermal springs, and hissing geysers. A walking tour in this town would also allow you to know more about the rich Maori culture and history of the region. If you're looking for some adventures, a visit to this town would certainly give you some opportunities to indulge in sky-diving, mountain-biking, and skiing. The nearby Waiotapu is also a popular attraction owing to its colourful hot springs.
